"Carlingford" Carlingford by Deefstes

Carlingford Travel Guide: 9 reviews and 66 photos

Carlingford is a very charming little town on the Carlingford Lough which forms the border between Ireland and Northern Ireland. The town is quite small and it's a delightful place to walk around.

Because Newry, further up the Lough made entrance to the river easier, Carlingford stopped developing somewhere in the middle ages which means that many old medieval buildings are still intact and as far as you walk the streets you see buildings like a medieval jail, mint, priory etc.

    The Mountains of Mourne sweep down to the see, well thats what the song says, and they look beautiful, as does this little village.

    Interesting thought about lough, bay, estuary. Although the difference between the latter is not difficult to define.
